Chas Hodges speaks: 'I'd be up for a farewell Chas & Dave gig' Chas & Dave Tickets

And Dave Peacock isn't retiring from music

Chas Hodges speaks: 'I'd be up for a farewell Chas & Dave gig'
Chas & Dave's Chas Hodges has told NME.COM that he'd be up for playing a farewell gig, after it was announced today bassist Dave Peacock is leaving the band following the death of his wife Sue in July.

Hodges stated that if Peacock wanted, he would happily play a final gig for fans.

"That would be entirely up the Dave, a farewell gig," he explained. "I'd be up for it if Dave wants to do it – but I've left it entirely up to Dave."

An online petition has been started urging the pair to play a final show.

Hodges meanwhile confirmed that although Peacock has left Chas & Dave, the bassist is not necessarily retiring from music full-stop.

"He's retiring from Chas & Dave," he said. "Yeah, he said to me about a month ago. He just said 'I don't wanna come back to work, old boy. I'm happy doing what I'm doing.' He's got his gypsy wagons [which] he restores."

Hodges vowed to continue playing Chas & Dave songs with his Chas and His Band group.

Earlier today, Carl Barat paid tribute to Chas & Dave, saying the split was a 'cultural earthquake'.
